Amitabh Bachchan is one of the biggest stars in Bollywood and recently he showed he also has a big heart. He has offered to pay for the heart surgery of a girl who has a life threatening illness.
Mita Mondal’s family is not able to pay for the treatment that is needed to correct her heart condition and so a private television channel Aaj Tak was making an appeal for the little girl.
Amitji heard the appeal, called the station during the broadcast and offered to pay the entire sum of Rs. 250,000 that is needed for the complicated surgery.
The family was sitting in the studio, Mita sitting on her mother’s lap, when Bachchan called. He spoke to the family himself and after they thanked him he said, “Tell me your address and I will arrange for the cheque to be sent right away. I pray that after the treatment she will be completely healthy.”
After Bachchan called, the family also got another offer of help, this time from the spokesman of a top hospital in Mumbai.
After all these amazing offers of assistance, Debu Mondal, the girl’s father said, “We are fortunate. We hope my daughter will come out as sprightly after the operation.”
We honor Amitabh Bachchan for offering his help and wish Mita a speedy recovery and a wonderful life in the future.
